This is the 3rd story in the series, but each book has been a stand alone story: In this story, Billy Jarvis died while he was a senior in high school, leaving behind his mother and his 12 year old brother, Donnie. For 10 years they would visit Billy's grave every Sunday. If the weather was nice, they would stay for hours so Momma could tell Billy everything that happened on her soaps. Of course Momma couldn't hear Billy. Sundays were just her opportunity to stay connected to her older son.
And the time to put the plan into action was fast approaching. Donnie wanted to share the plan with Momma, but Billy got mad at that idea. And then Momma died anyway. Now Donnie really IS alone.
For My Brother
But he will not let Billy down. Time to put the plan to work. Time for Billy to rest in peace. As this story builds you will find yourself turning pages faster and faster to see if the 4 kidnapped victims will be safe or not. Same for the reporter who figures out how the kidnapping cases are related. Will the police arrive in time to save everyone or will there be casualties? The tension builds nicely, and it was a great read! Jason Strong 3 has us following along on a twisted case of revenge, with multiple people disappearing. Enjoyable fast-moving police procedural, with enough action and suspense to keep the reader interested.
As much as I enjoyed it though, couple of things that bugged me. First was the fact that the reporter actually did better detective work than our heroes. No Google available at the police station? The other thing was the use of leaving paper notes on Jason's desk instead of calling or texting him via cellphone.
And what's with the use of pagers? I really couldn't tell if this story took place in present day, or 20 yrs ago, as the inconsistencies in the use of technology was baffling. For example, as the story races to the climax, his commanding lieutenant first leaves a paper note to let him know she needs to see him, then later pages him, then finally calls him on his cell phone.
For My Brother (Detective Jason Strong): John C. Dalglish: dev3.backoffice.snapp.ir: Books
Those parts had me scratching my head, which was disappointing since the rest of the story was nicely done. I liked the second book of this series, and feel this one is even better, save for the couple of issues I mentioned above. One person found this helpful. Jason Strong 3 was a great page Jason Strong 3 was a great page turner and mystery thriller! The crime this time was a multiple missing persons case, with a few twists and turns along the way! The villain was well written and was not the typical villain, he was a lost, tortured soul!
I was sympathizing with him as well, because of his motive! You don't get that in most mysteries: Jason Strong as the detective is also a great character, he's good hearted, determined, and kind! Jason Strong Series I have finished the entire series and have nothing but praise for every one of them! Excellent series; endearing characters; great reads. I ripped through this book in one sitting and completed the same day.
I found it competently written with not a single curse word good for those not enjoying hard-boiled suspense books and held my interest throughout. My favorite passage was "His mother's face was drawn, almost gray.
Pain welled up in her eyes, and Donnie realized he had seen that look before" which helped set the tone for the book. Given it's quick, satisfying content, I've gone on to download "Silent Justice" as well and am looking forward to reading it, too! Just finished the third book in this series.
Frequently bought together
Once again I am extremely impressed by the excellent writing by this author. These books are well written and extremely entertaining and not bogged down by useless and unnecessary deviations from the theme of the story. Bottom line this is a great book and a great series. Looking forward to the next one. I agreed with most of the reviews that I read whether they were two stars or 4 or 5.
The characterization was good, the plot was good, the grammar was terrible and the punctuation was distracting. Why is the world enamored of the apostrophe these days? Okay, here follows my soapbox. An apostrophe is not used to denote a plural; it is used to denote a missing letter or a possessive noun. Those kinds of errors, whether grammar or punctuation, are distracting. That having been said, this is the first book novella of the series that I have read, and I really enjoyed it.
I don't usually like to read novellas see, no apostrophe , but I found this one very entertaining. So I'll look for other books by the author and hope that the editing improves. Amazing what the whispers of the mind can convince you to do. Jason is off to a running start but without his usual partner Vanessa.
See a Problem?
People are missing to many to ignore! This book will have you guessing. Good book So sad. Really good book I like your detectives so much. Their calm manner and kindness. Good chapters Good reading. This goes for all the books. Always a good read. I'm very impressed with this series. Suspense is plentiful and never let's you down. Keep up the good work John. What happens when a man believes he can hear his dead brother? Donnie believes his dead brother has told him how to make things right, and now Detective Strong is pushed to figure out why people are disappearing.
In the third book of the series, Jason is without his regular partner Vanessa Layne and must rely on a new partner to help him so p Can visiting a grave connect us with the dead? Oct 29, Cyndi rated it really liked it. This is a nice clean mystery and a fast read. I've listened to one other book in the Jason Strong series and enjoyed it as well.
Jason Strong is not the main character in this book, he plays a minor role. It is based around Donnie, who believes that he can hear his brother talking to him from the grave. He believes that his brother wants revenge on the other kids that were with him when he died. I can tell that this author is still on the newer side, but still a decent read. I listened to the au This is a nice clean mystery and a fast read.
I listened to the audio book and the narrator did a decent job. The recording was not the greatest, but not to annoying. Overall, a good clean mystery. Feb 02, Ryan rated it it was amazing.

I love following the Detective Jason Strong series and can't wait for next book in the series. Donnie has a mission. His big brother is dead because he shot himself while playing Russian Roulette. The four people with him are going to regret being there to witness Billy's death. Donnie believes that Billy is speaking to him from the grave and putting a plan into place to kidnap the four survivors. This is the third in the Jason Strong series. Nice clean mysteries full of suspense and likeable characters. Jan 02, Kimberly rated it it was ok Shelves: The third in the Jason Strong, Detective series, centered around a San Antonio Police Detective, therefore, each installment in the series can be read stand alone.
I volunteered to read this through a call out on Goodreads and am glad to have stepped up for the opportunity. Once again the high bar has been set and exceeded Just finished the third book in this series. Once again I am extremely impressed by the excellent writing by this author. These books are well written and extremely entertaining and not bogged down by useless and unnecessary deviations from the theme of the story.
Bottom line this is a great book and a great series. Looking forward to the next one. Dec 13, Scott rated it liked it Shelves: Another short story with Jason Strong. It wasn't a detective story this time because they didn't detect anything and their reasoning was a little flawed. These are enjoyable little short stories anyway. This one in particular didn't have a bunch of death. In fact, no one was murdered in this at all.
The books are well written and full of suspense but they are short stories. Personally I like longer stories. I am starting book four in this series. I will let you know if this is worth going on. Aug 23, Juliana Lyon rated it it was amazing Shelves: This was definitely the hardest of the series.
I can't wait to start the new series by Dalglish.
